Ship Facts: Seabourn Sojourn Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Sojourn Deck Plans
First time Seabourn experience a great vacation.

We have been wanting to try Seabourn for several years and received a very nice email offer for a 10 day Sojourn Caribbean cruise with stops in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Basseterre, St. Kitts, St. Johns, Antigua, St. John (Cruz Bay), USVI and Isla Catalina, Dominican Republic. Also, 4 sea days was a big plus, as we enjoy sea days. This was our 55th cruise, and had been to all the ports except for Antigua.

The ship was delayed coming into Ft. Lauderdale because the Captain on the prior segment was taken ill, so our embarkation was delayed by a few hours. Not a problem as we had come in 2 days early are were staying at a nearby hotel, just a short taxi ride from the port.

We enjoy smaller ships, and found the Sojourn's 350 passenger size to be not too small (as with their older 3 ships) and the ship was really easy to get around. The ship was spotless, cabin extremely well laid out with lots of storage space, especially for a shorter cruise. Being outdoor walkers, we enjoyed walking on the metal deck rather than use the gym. We didn't use the pool, and had little opportunity for sun-bathing, but did enjoy the cabin and balcony. We enjoyed a few shows which were quite good considering the small space. We really like having everything included (soda, water, wine), only paying for tours and the internet. The staff was outstanding - and almost every night, we were invited to a staff's table, where we met many interesting, well-traveled passengers. The Seabourn Square with the coffee bar alone will put us on this ship (and the sister ships) again!

We took the train tour in St. Kitts, which we enjoyed, and only walked around the other ports, as we had 'been there, done that'.

Our only disappointment was the food, which we found not up to Holland ships on their longer trips (21 days or longer) or Regent's ships. But overall experience made up for that!
